Hetauda, October 11

Province 3 Chief Minister Dormani Poudel today urged police to maintain law and order so that people feel secure and at peace.

Inaugurating a programme organised by Province 3 Police Office to mark the 63rd Police Day in Hetauda, Poudel stated that police had to play a key role to reduce crime and maintain law and order.

CM Poudel said that crime at the border area, rampant illegal activities and drug smuggling were the challenges for the police organisation. He stressed the need to equip the police with new technology and training to increase their capacity and policing skills.

Poudel informed that more than 60 buildings of the police organisation at various levels were under construction in the province.

“I’m quite hopeful that police personnel will find it easy to discharge their responsibilities after completion of the buildings,” Poudel added.

CM Poudel said they would provide necessary materials including Province Police Formation, creation of vacancies, recruitment and training centre in the policy and programme of the province government.

Meanwhile, CM Poudel asked the police organisation to be tough against rape, domestic violence, murder and human trafficking. “Province police and Nepal police have to collaborate well to maintain law and order,” Poudel added.
